The Great Features Of GlockApps
GlockApps has a plethora of features that make your email campaigns easier and more successful. Users can set up automatic tests that work based on the chosen time interval and help monitor sender reputation and deliverability over time. People using MailChimp as their email service provider can benefit from the direct integration with MailChimp and test their email campaigns created in MailChimp in their account in GlockApps.
Email tests provide a lot of useful information for the user to assess how their email campaigns could be performing and what could be causing spam placements: IP blacklisting issues, high email spam score, failed email authentication, or bad domain reputation. Email test reports show a list of action steps that the user can follow to fix deliverability issues.
Alex had much to say about GlockApps array of features:
“GlockApps helps email senders understand what will happen to their emails after they are sent, find out what causes the spam folder placement, and improve deliverability by optimizing the message and email system. It provides a set of tools for testing and monitoring sender reputation, domain authentication, IP address status, and email deliverability. With GlockApps, senders can understand which domain or IP address has a better reputation, which template performs better, or which links can trigger spam filters and optimize the message to get a high Inbox rate. GlockApps provides recommendations on how to improve deliverability based on the information it receives from tested messages, reports given by spam filters, and obtained Inbox and Spam rate”.
“The best part of GlockApps is that it can perform email tests automatically and send alerts when it detects spam folder placements, and issues with the email authentication records and IP address, for example, when the sending IP address gets on a blacklist. The alerts can be integrated with email, Slack, and Telegram”.
GlockApps Plans And Pricing
GlockApps has four different paid plans to choose from, including a free trial. Beyond the trial, you’ll find the Basic, Business, and Enterprise plans. Alex told me which plans were most popular amongst GlockApps customers:
“With the GlockApps email testing service, the Basic subscription plan is mostly used. This plan provides access to all the tools available at GlockApps. This plan is popular among individual senders and small organizations which are concerned about their email deliverability.
Email service providers and large companies prefer the Enterprise plan which gives a high number of deliverability tests per month and allows to receive DMARC reports for a high volume of sent emails. Annual plans are popular among large companies as well. We allow users to create a free account with GlockApps and run 3 email tests to try the service. The 14-day trial period for DMARC Analytics is also available in the user’s account”.

Lastly, Alex told me about some plans for the future and what the GlockApps team are working on at the moment:
“We will focus on new services and integrations to provide high-quality products to our existing and future customers.
Right now, we are working on the integration of GlockApps and our email tracking service. This integration will allow our users to have all the data centralized in one place”.
